	I did removed my .elinks directory just to be sure. No change.
	I did try to disable and enable it but did not see any change.

	Still works with the 0.4 branch.

	Maybe but how do we know the mailcap is loaded?

	Do not see it in pre6, neither in Oct 06 build.

	On another note, the pre6 source does not contain the
	palette.inc file. Had to copy it from the oct 06 build.
